    This girl was criminalized and expelled from school because of making a ‘false report’.

Victims are questioned, punished, and humiliated over and over [...]

    A recent study released by The Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health/funded by the National Institute for Health  shows a direct link between poverty and mortality in the United States.  While, of course, we all know this is the case, you would be hard-pressed to find a medical journal or research institute that could provide [...]

    Almost two years ago, Feministing posted about the arrest of Muzzammil Hussan, who was accused of stabbing (over 40 times) and beheading his wife after she applied for divorce.  I am not sure if this has become public knowledge again, but in late January Hussan went on trial for the crime; yesterday, he was convicted of [...]
